Flag of Komi (GIF)

The flag of Komi (Komi: Коми Республикаса дӧрапас; Russian: Флаг коми) is a visually striking tricolor, composed of three horizontal stripes in blue, green, and white from top to bottom. Each color holds profound symbolism, reflecting the region's cultural identity and natural beauty. The blue stripe signifies the celestial expanse, portraying the grandeur and vastness of the northern landscapes. The green stripe, representing hope and abundance, is emblematic of the expansive taiga massifs that dominate Komi's land, particularly Parma, a vital living environment for the Komi people. The white stripe, symbolizing the purity of snow and the stark beauty of northern nature, conveys the republic's northern position. Alternatively, white signifies the purity of the nation, the equality of its diverse peoples, and the unity of their cultures. Together, these elements on the Komi flag create a harmonious representation of the region's natural wealth, cultural unity, and its unique place within the northern reaches of the Russian Federation.
